Grilled BBQ Beer Chicken and Apricot Flatbreads

  Let’s say you and I get into it over pizza. We hash it out over the best pizza we’ve ever had. We talk about Naples, and LA, and both agree that New York beats Chicago, unless you want a casserole, then Chicago pizza will do. And then I tell you that the best Ray’s […]

Apricot Sriracha IPA Chicken and Session IPA’s for Summer

  For what seems like decades brewers have been involved in a bit of an ABV arms race to see who can bring to the table the IPA with highest alcohol content. The Top That ABV Game seems to be waining in favor of the Full Flavor Session IPA game, to the relief of lightweights […]

Yogurt and Beer Marinated Chicken Skewers

  I’ve decided that the grill is officially open. Regardless of the weather, regardless of the time constraints, regardless of the lack of Meats on Sticks occasions in my near future. The grill needs to be open. Maybe it’s the catastrophic levels of stress in my life right now, maybe it’s my severe vitamin D […]

Chicken and Beer Cheese Stuffed Anaheim Chilies

  When I was 19 I thought it was a great idea to drive a 20-year-old Ford Bronco nearly the entire length of the 5 Freeway to be my primary means of transportation. Slow, old, unreliable, often ticketed, frequently towed, it didn’t end well. I was broke and had barely enough money to fill the […]

Orange Chili Porter Glazed Skillet Chicken

I know the google stalking that goes on. But don’t think it’s one sided. I see the key word searches, or the things you post about me on Facebook, but I do the same thing. I’ve clicked over to your page too, seen the vacation photos and the fact that you also have a mild […]

Roasted Duck Legs with Porter Cherry Sauce

I didn’t grow up in a cooking household. With two working parents and seven sisters it was more of a defrost and feed the masses situation. It was culinary triage every day. I never saw a head of garlic, or a homemade cake, or real whipped cream my entire childhood. The focus was on feeding […]

Chicken Thighs with Rosemary Tomato Beer Sauce

In high school I had a guidance councilor ask me what I thought I would be when I grew up. Not “what do you want to be” but “what do you think you will be,” much different questions for a kid, and much more accurate window into the future. I thought about it for a […]

Beer Fried Chicken

I’ve told you that in my Past Life Pre Blogging Existence I worked with gang kids in South Central LA. Like this kid, and this one. As a skinny, blonde haired, blue-eyed, 21-year-old, I didn’t exactly blend seamlessly into Compton and Watts. My  Stand Out appearance was obvious to me, but it was other oddities about […]

Slow Cooker Beer Chicken Tacos with Jalapeno Slaw

I’ve often been accused of going overboard. Of being one of those people who just does too much. But it’s all smoke and mirrors in a way. I’m not as organized or even as interesting as I’d like you to think. I leave dishes in the sink far too long, my pantry is a mess […]
